Ethical Principles of Manuscript Publication
This publication always tries to follow the rules and regulations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) in the field of publication ethics.
- The submitted manuscript or its content must not have been previously published in a journal or simultaneously submitted to another journal, and in case of acceptance in the journal, it must not be presented or published elsewhere.
- The preparation of the manuscript must be free from any malpractice, unethical act, and against scientific norms, including falsifying data, distorting facts, plagiarism in presenting analysis or conducting experiments and checking the opinions of others, or in expressing research results. If the members of the editorial board have a question regarding ethical matters, the author should answer and have the right to defend the verdict of the evidence and request a thorough and quick investigation.
- The list of authors should show exactly who did the research and who wrote the manuscript. It is necessary to mention the responsible person and colleagues in the manuscript and be careful about the absence of unrelated names. The corresponding author (the person who is responsible for the manuscript) is the person who has contributed significantly to the preparation, design, and implementation of the manuscript. The names of other authors are also mentioned as collaborators in the manuscript. The main author of the manuscript is required to have the names and information of all authors and ensure the absence of names other than the authors of the manuscript.
- The personal information of the authors of the manuscripts is confidential for all those who have access to it, including the editor, editorial members, and internal and executive managers of the publication, and it is always protected.
- The manuscripts presented by the authors must be the work of the author presenting the manuscript, and if other people's research is used, it should be cited in the manuscript.
- Decisions about manuscripts are made under the supervision of the editors and through the appointment of qualified reviewers.
- The evaluation of all the received manuscripts is done by several reviewers without their being aware of the names of the authors. The opinions of the reviewers will be announced to the author after the summary.
- The use of other people's research results must be done with reference and express written permission from the author.
- The members of the editorial board should not participate in making decisions about their manuscripts
- The reviewing process is the heart of a scientific publication's success. To carry out the reviewing process correctly and fairly, the secretariat is committed to helping the scientific community in all aspects of ethical publication and to the extent possible to identify and deal with violations such as plagiarism, redundancy, and unfair author deletion or adding.
